Wreckage

By (author): Sally Stubbs

It’s 1924. Rose disappears from a train wreck without a trace. Twenty-five years later her red suitcase arrives anonymously and mysteriously, triggering her daughter’s search for the truth and unlocking a bizarre chain of events. A haunted railway detective, gourmet gangster-chefs, a Puccini-singing ghost, and a host of Dicensian characters populate Vancouver’s underbelly. Wreckage is a stylish “gangster” play with a dark and wicked sense of humour and the theatrical punch of a speeding train.

Reviews

“This intriguing play play holds our interest throughout: clever, humourous script.”

“All is not what it appears to be in Wreckage. That makes for compelling drama, especially for mystery lovers, but it also reminds audiences of how tragedy unfolds.”
